4.5 needles

Recommended Posts

Yes.  You should be able to use any size needle in the same class just like you do in your domestic machine.  When I had machines I successfully used needles from 3.0 up to 4.5 without making any changes to my machines.  I think the problems usually come in when going to a significantly smaller needle because they flex easier and may require the timing to be set up so the needle kisses the hook a little harder.  That is why APQS will tell you to stay within one size up or down from 4.0.
